Thank you for visiting artful embellishments. This is the third year for this blog and I am so happy to keep publishing. I started in 2011 and began with a quilt of the week, this lead to the leaf of the week for my newly designed paper tree that is located on the wall of my garage in 2012.......2013 is going to bring a lot of excitement and positive change. As a personal challenge for 2013, I plan on designing a artist trading card each week to be featured on the blog.
With so many interests, there will be quilting, art quilting, leaves (and more leaves), as well as experiments in thermofax screen printing, fabric dying, and tons of DIY recycle projects. I may even enter that altered fashion scene. To a happy and healthy 2013, may we all find happiness in those things we create....thank you for stoping by artful embellishments.

Quilt-UFO (Unfinished Object)

 As the year draws to a close I decided to try and finish some of those UFO's. I am famous for starting large projects and then getting stuck on a part of them that I don't like as much. Quilts are a classic example. I love piecing the top of the quilt, and am not as interested in the pinning to prepare for quilting. So I often have multiple quilt tops waiting to be quilted.  This is one that I started about a year ago. I finished it last week by using a quilting technique that I hadn't used before.  Using designs from my embroidery machine, I managed to finish the entire quilt.  I typically am not that colorful so this was a quilt that I used coordinating bright fabrics. This quilt definitely
adds a pop of color to my neutral decor.

  1. Wow, Michelle, I am completely clueless when it comes to quilting, so I'm pretty much in awe of what you have finished here. Way to go - beautiful work!!
